EDL member charged with terrorism offences is Michael Piggin

A judge has lifted an order banning the naming of an 18-year-old man charged with terror offences.

Michael Piggin, of Loughborough, is accused of possession of items for the purpose of terrorism, including partially-constructed pipe bombs. He is also charged with possessing a document containing information likely to be useful for a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.

Mr Piggin denies the two charges and his trial is due to begin on Tuesday.

Mr Piggin is alleged to have possessed nine partially-assembled petrol bombs, firework powder, partially-constructed improvised explosive devices, a crossbow, a variety of air rifles, a gas mask and stab proof vest. He is also charged with having a notebook containing information about the planning of attacks and the construction of explosive devices.

Mr Piggin, whose name could not previously be reported owing to his age, is due to stand trial at the Old Bailey in London.

    A bit like the new Atheists who enjoy talking about how they’re so intelligent and analytical but in reality they’re probably just some fat fools trying to reach for their pint of Guinness.

    I just laugh at those “neo-crusaders” when in reality they’re just armchair generals who are upset because they ran out of mountain dew

    “Michael Piggin said to have planned Columbine-type massacre told friends on Facebook he would be a martyr, Old Bailey trial hears”

    Looks like one of those Columbine rejects.

    I think Loonwatch has bribed this Muslim to impersonate as a right-wing terrorist in order to defame a patriotic organization like the EDL. /sarc

    Hah, Commander at The Knights Templar. By the look of him he probably couldn’t even command sheep.

    What an idiot . I wonder how his not guilty plea will work as stupidity is not a valid defence in the UK.

    Indeed, I thought him well named. Also, you know how they say that when you get old, you get the face you deserve…well, he already has it.

    Ugh I hate it when racist pricks act like they are in the military D: they are not defending anyone they are just assess. Also having pig in his name seems appropriate.
